Hi there! Hope you'll like the pics of my Trusty. 5 mths with me so far :biggrin2: (no idea how long were it's free-ranging days though). It used to be a ferocious hunter, now it prefers to sit pretty n wait to be hand fed. :roll:

It usually displays brown but can go from creamy white to dark chocolate.
I chose 3 pics of Trusty displaying diff colours here.

Cheers, LS

Nice pics L S, he is a Latimanus right? He reminds me of Zoidberg, I only had him for 4 months.
Anyway, trusty looks like hes still a juvenille, and will have a long time more(50cm ML). As he becomes larger, he'll start showing nicer colours like red, right now hes just acting like a mangrove leaf (3rd pic).

Thanks guys :smile:

Joel, yes it should be a Sp. Latimanus. N I was glad to hv gotten it small. Hope to provide the best conditions for it to reach its full life span.

Pennsylvania!!! And it was several years ago I saw one at That Pet Place. Could have been an adult from what I hear what's available here in the states. I've been meaning to put a call in to see if any are available and then I need to start another salt tank!
